Media Luna is an incredible opportunity for any visitor to the Sacred Valley. Tucked away in Urububamba, visitors can spend an afternoon with local community members, learning about their various trades and talents. The hospitality shown by the locals is incredible, as they let you into their homes and livelihoods, they explain their trades in detail and provide samples and demonstrations, whether weaving, raising guinea pigs or making the local chicha. I highly recommend this experience to anyone traveling to the area; in fact, it's not worth the trip to Urubamba if you don't take a few hours to visit these generous, informative and engaging locals. Support the local economy, try some chicha, learn about how those beautiful wall hangings are made (including a demonstrations on dying the alpalca wool), enjoy the breathtaking scenery, and get a deeper understanding of the local culture.
Keep in mind the fee is nominal (we paid 40 soles- about 12 US dollars- for a tour that lasted a few hours) and goes directly into the hands of your local hosts.
